Take this special opportunity to experience the magic of twilight along the Delaware Canal and the spectacle of a full “Blue Moon” at Wells’ Falls on the Delaware River in New Hope.  On Wednesday, January 31, join in a 4-mile, round-trip walk along the towpath sponsored by the Friends of the Delaware Canal.  The trek will begin at 5:00 p.m. and will start in the upper section of Washington Crossing Historic Park across Route 32 from Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve.  The entrance drive is at the intersection of Aquetong Road and Route 32/River Road, two miles south of New Hope.
Katie Martens, Delaware Canal State Park Educator, and Susan Taylor, Executive Director of the Friends, will lead the way from Bowman’s Hill to Lock 11 in New Hope listening for owls and keeping an eye out for other nocturnal critters.  
At Wells’ Falls, walkers will take in the grandeur of the River and watch the full ”Blue Moon” rise above the hills of New Jersey.  On the way northward, Locks 8, 9, 10 and the canal outlet to the River will come into view.  Waiting at Lock 11 and the Locktender’s House will be hot cider, snacks, and a place to warm up before heading back to the starting point.  
The Twilight Trek is free and will be held weather permitting. It will be cancelled in the event of rain, total cloud cover, or dangerous driving conditions.  Check the homepage of for a Go/No Go message that will be posted by 12:00 p.m. on January 31.
